This blend includes a smooth and yet powerful Latakia from Syria. This tobacco gives the blend the overall “smoky” taste. It is a powerful flavour with no tongue bite whatsoever. To add a spicy note to the blend, Turkish Oriental has been added. A mix of Virginia tobaccos from three different continents adds a sweet natural taste. To complete the recipe with depth and body, we added a little Dark Fired Kentucky from the USA.The HH Vintage Syrian Latakia is a loose cut tobacco, which guarantees a smooth and steady burn. It does not get hot which means you will find extremely little bite on your tongue. When you empty your pipe after smoking, you will find only fine grey ashes left over from this wonderful slow and dry smoke.
